Hi, so I have just bought a entry level mini itx to run a small project on however I am having major problems with trying to load Windows on? I have got an iso of Windows xp put on a usb, set the settings to boot from usb first but I am not getting anywhere. Do I need to do more than just putting an iso on to the usb?
I am going around in circles so any help would be great!
I am a newbie at this, first time I have done a new build, thinking I am in above my head now! :-(

An .iso is an image file, you can't install from an .iso
You need to burn the .iso to a CD or usb using a program capable of burning them. (basically the program unpacks it back to an .exe etc on the CD/usb)
Do a google search for 'iso file to a bootable usb'
